Polymath artists Helena Deland and Ourielle Auvé have begun recording together as Hildegard, and “Jour 1” — animated by a tense humanity — is their gently-mechanized and mysterious new single. You can visit the band’s website to find streaming links and learn more about them. Via Stereogum.
Planed with a steady hand and polished to a gleam, “Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you)” is the flawlessly-executed brand-new single from Belgian musician Charlotte Adigéry. The track is part of the DEEWEE label’s Foundations compilation, and you can order vinyl and CD versions of that from their webstore. It’s available from Bandcamp, too. Via Les inRocks.
Next month Peruvian, Berlin-based musician Sofia Kourtesis releases her Fresia Magdalena EP, and its “By Your Side” is a layered, kaleidoscopic and mind-expanding astral projection. Out from March 19th, you can now order 12″-vinyl and digital versions of it both from Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour or her Bandcamp page. Via Gorilla vs. Bear.
